i Volume 17, NO. 4 SER VI;CG THE PEOPI.E OF CABIN JOHN AND BEYOND ~December 1983 I SCATTER PLAN BRINGS RELIEF TO CABIN JOHN The scatter plan went into effect October 24 at National Airport as a ninety day trial to study the impact of jet noise over a wider range of the Washington metropolitan area. Under the trial plan, jets leave National Airport and turn at a lower altitude in different directions, prior to reaching the Cabin John Bridge. The Federal Aviation Administration initia- ted the experiment at the recommendation of the Washington area Council of Governments (COG) which represents all government jurisdictions in the metropolitan region. Severalof these jurisdictions, such as the City of Alexandria, have gone to court to try to stop the test, but so far unsuccessfully. According to press reports, the FAA has been getting three times more complaints from the public than favorable comments.

II CITIZENS ASSOCIATION LOOKS BACK IN OCTOBER, LOOKS AHEAD IN NOVEMBER If you missed the October 25 Citizens As- sociation meeting, you missed a great evening of Cabin John history. Over i00 people turned out for brief reminiscences by various Cabin Johners about _ th~ history-bf-tHe Gardens ………. – the origins of the Village News – the story of the mysterious “John of the Cabin” – Clara Barton School from 1928 until now – the grand old Cabin John Bridge Hotel – the Indians who first inhabited this area – the 1976 bicentennial “Chautauqua” – the old cemetery near Carver Road – and much more. Movies of Clara Barton School festivals in 1952 and 1957 were shown, and a tape from a 1957 PTA meeting featuring Andrew Wilkins (who died in 1980 at the age of 92) and first School principal Guy Jewett was played. There were also newspaper clipppings of the past 20 years (including early plans for MacArthur Parkand a 1969 article ~ announcing a “two week” delay in the start of a National Airport scatter plan~). Many teenagers came to look at photos of themselves from Clara Barton School days. Former residents returned for the event, including Morris and Frances Fradin and the Sipes sisters. There were many “old timers” on hand buthonors for the person who has lived longest in Cabin John went to Frank McKinney who was born here in 1916. ~t its next meeting, on Tuesday, November 22, at 8 p.m. at the Clara Barton/Washington International School, the Association will be looking ahead at improvements to~MacArthur Boulevard (see separate story in this issue). “We’ll be looking at all aspects of our ‘Main Street’ — its maintenance, landscaping, load limit, law enforcement, the bike trail, and more,” reports Association President Susan Vogt. “Come help us plan for this important part of Cabin John which we all use daily.” Every child ~– allages included — should give this magic spectacle a visit some moonlit night. Fog, and even rain, can add to the dramatic •effect. By Thanksgiving, I believe the builders of these 30 townhouses will have all units finished and possibly occupied. Then we up here will join all of you around and down there in giving thanks ~ for another•safe entry into Cabin John. Bless the day I moved to Cabin John~ –Rob Quinn 3 Tlff. VILLAGE blFW.~ (WhiTe we usually don’t publish anonymous let- ters, this one seemed to speak for so many resi- dents that we decided to make an exception) Are You Guilty? You didn’t cut your grass all summer — I don’t suppose you will rake your leaves this fall. You leave your trash cans on the street, week after week, uncovered, and put raw garbage into them. Even when dogs or racoons get into the cans you don’t bother to pick the trash from the street; you hope the trash man will. You let your dogs:and cats run loose to do their business on other people’s lawns. You may even walk them on a leash and let them do the same thingl There are inoperable • cars on the street and in yards in various states of repair. But how long is it going to take to repair them, or have them towed away? Some of you should be getting Mary- land tags on your cars too. I see a lot of out- of-state tags on cars that have stayed in Cabin John months and long ago should have had Maryland tags put on them.

THE VILLAGE NEWS 5 The People of Cabin John WHEELS AND THE WOMAN By Barbara Martin Lauren Forestell doesn’t fit anybody’s ster £ typed idea of a motorcycle racer~ At5’4″, I~C pounds, with long,curly, red hair – she is no Hell’s Angel. Yet her all consuming passion in life is motorcycle racing – road racing done on an asphalt course 1 1/2 to 4 miles long. In I~8O, Lauren Was first in her class (650 production and modified production), and in 1981 she was first in the 125 Grand Prix clas~. For her class, she is currently Number One in the Mid-Atlantic Region. There is no separate women’s racing, so when Lauren is Number One, she is winning over all the men who race in that class. ” …………. Placement is determined by number 0fpoints accumulated in races, points being awarded ac- cording to where the racer finishes. Atyear’s end, points are totalled and positions deter- mined. In the opinion of many who know racing well, Lauren is the fastest and best woman road racer in the United States, including those who race professionally. When she was 14, Lauren got her first ride on the back of a motorbike and decided it was the most exciting thing she’s ever experienced. ment, the constant maintenance andre- pair; the travel costs. very zew women compete in road-racing. “In a competition of 400 riders, you may see five women – no more,” Lauren says. Asked if she’s hampered bY lesser strength and muscle, Lauren explains. “It’s an ad- vantage to ~ be light, just like a jockey in a horserace. As far as steering muscle strength in the arms and shoulders – I don’t needto be super-strong; my bike only weighs 150pounds.” But riding keepsher in excellent con- dition. At the end (but not at the begin- ning) of the road racing season, she can do50 men’s push-ups. The season lasts ~rom March to November – the better part of the year. She does her own mechanical maintenance. “All racers carry our own parts and tools, and we help each other. I also travel wieh ~nother racer to share expenses and driving. But anybody at the race will help.” Lauren’s husband, Larry Byrum, whom she met racing – retired from thatsport following a From the time she was 18, she always had a mot- srash in 1980 which fractured his skull. orcycle, “for transportation, for economy, for ~leasure.” When a friend borrowed her cycle and wrecked it, ~ he replaced it with a model that Lauren discovered was fast, maneuverable, and competitive at the races. “So I raced it; and in that first race I placed llth out of 45~ From then on I was :hopelessly addicted. As a kid I wanted to be a jockey or a race-car driv- er, so it seemed a natural thing to do.” “That was my tlrst racing bike – an RD 350 Yamaha. Out of necessitY I learned to take care of the bike myself, and to modify it so it would go faster. After a while I got a 65Q Kawasaki. Suc h a pleasure; it always ran and I could spend my time practicing and racing, not repairing my bike. Lauren was doing more and m0re rac- ing. Most of her weekends were spent in races anywhere in the Eastern half of the ~ountry, and in traveling to and from those races. “Typically, you get Off work at 5 on Friday, and get on the road by 6 and drive all night. Saturday and Sun- day, you’re practicing and racing and then you drive home Sunday night. And back on the job on Monday.” Lauren’s jobs have been accounting or general office work. She works to get the money to pay for racing – and for equip- His trophies fill two shelves in their living room. He is naturally sympathetic with the single-minded ener~ ,ith which Laurenpur- ~ues competitive racing. Together, Lauren and Larry are remodel- ing their house on Tomlinson Avenue, knock- ing out walls, stripping wallpaper, putting in shelves and closets. The do-it-yourself project is proceeding at a somewhat slow pace since it has to be fitted around racin~. Lauren has had remarkably few injuries. She crashes about once a year, and rarely suffers more than a few bumps and bruises. Is thisbecause she’s exceptionally careful, or exceptionally skillful? “I’m smooth. I don’t make abrupt, jerky movements. I have excellent coordination and all my movements are subtle, whether it’s in transferring weight or incrasing speed.” She is totally in love with racing. “I love the stimulation from competing. I love the ego gratification that comes f~-~m doinc well – the respect from the other racers, and my own knowledge that I’m good. And I val- ue the social aspect, the cameraderie.” Does she ever think of life after racing? “No. Some racers are grey-haired and 60. Sure, it’s traditionally a young man’s sport, but then I’m not very traditional.” .-TILE VILLAGE-NEWS 6 <,II @ \ In lastmonth’s ~ssue, the staff of the VillageNews expressed the impression ~hat Oa~bin John had attracted a large number of people with roots and branche~ in di~ense CABIN JOHN: I~ERNATIONAL?

Since then we have variously named ourselves “Dust Bowl Gulch”, “Bulldozer ……. Alley”, “Mud Flats Overlook” and”Watermain Junc- tion”. In short, weather has had much to do with the view from the Terrace. Following three days of rain, one got an eerie sense of oozing and floating out onto Seven Locks Road. Then on those dry sunny days, the dust gradually billowed higher and higher until on a dusty Sunday one could negotiate Seven Locks Road only at the risk of front end collisions or,at best, near misses. September was the beginning ( I emphasize BEGINNING) Of the •final connector link of Seven Locks Road• But it stopped a third of a mile short of Archbold Terrace while various t~ings were installed like storm drains and connecting sewer lines. Then in October the final stretch ~ of road straightening took place. However, on one evening when warning flashers were misplaced, a friend drove onto the remaining half of the old roadway five feet above the new roadway. Stopping to survey the shriveling roadway ahead, she found her margin of safety *on the driver’s side too nar- row to step out on. Forging ahead through the dust, there emerged an escape driveway in the nick of time. As with all things, time brings some relief. And November on Seven Locks Road is bringing the finishing touches to this renewed entryway into Cabin John. Still there is mud, and if not, then there is dust. Then there is also this nightly event: I call it the Ride of the Lone Ranger who barrels through* the Seven Locks obstacle course at full throttle, roaring past the Terrace with a Doppler effect One+ used to +hear with steam pas- senger trains• Of course, there is also the return +O , , • 3 urney la.ter with the same fanfare fortissimo Meanwhile, mailboxes ordered in May have just been installed• One loss with this advance in technology will be the mail call visits with Brian and friends at Cabin John Post Office• It remiands me in its folksiness of the long-ago country store ambiance.
